Democratic Activist & Chickenhawk

Noted Democratic Activist, notorious Chickenhawk and Serial Killer John Wayne Gacy pictured with then soon to be First Lady Rosalynn Carter in Chicago.

Many rather dumb liberals have decided that they are so smart that they could frame an argument in a manner that precludes the other side from even positing an argument. They state that if one is not in the military then one could not argue for any use of the military. Anybody with a brain and a reasonable education would know that the converse would also hold, if one is not in the military then one could not argue against military action because one would not have the necessary background to make the decision. Of course they are making the charge that anyone who advocates military action should take up arms and fight, as if that was the only action that one could do to support a nation at war. They also ignore the fact that in our democracy the military is controlled by civilians; if it were otherwise (as they suggest that it must be!) those very same fruitcakes would be going utterly bonkers, as would an overwhelming majority of conservatives.

What Would the Left Do?

What would a lefty blogger do with the hysterical pictures above? A couple of weeks ago I was driving up the Edens Expressway when I came across the woman pictured above. She had part of her car dragging behind her and it was attached to a bumper that held a sticker for last fall's (and a current) Democratic candidate for Congress in the Illinois 10th Congressional District, Dan Seals. Well if the shoe was on the other foot and the car had a bumper sticker for 10th District Congressman Mark Kirk (R-IL) you can bet that those photos wouldn't have languished inside of an iphone but rather they would have been trotted out to show how heartless, stupid and yes dangerous those evil Republicans are. I did no such thing concerning those funny photos, Dan Seals and the Democratic Party because it would have been stupid.

Well none other than Illinois 10th Congressional District Democratic blogger and Dan Seals supporter Ellen Beth Gill, the blogger at Ellen's Illinois Tenth Congressional District Blog that I wrote about here, has written a post concerning a woman who allegedly drove through a stop sign "in the city" (I would presume Chicago) while using her Blackberry-type device. Ellen has blamed the incident (that occurred "in the city") on President George Bush and the North Shore Congressman Kirk. This has got to be one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever read. I must ask, does this nonsense represent the left side of the blog world? I must also note that she has no photos of that neo-con outrage "in the city."

One would think that a resident of one of Chicago's suburbs would know that the residents of the city of Chicago are overwhelmingly Democratic and the women are even more so. Especially if said suburbanite is part of * the local suburban Democratic Party. Frankly, if the event described actually occurred the driver was likely one of Ellen's compatriots who was driving-while-blackberrying "in the city". Maybe it was even a lady on an iphone reading one of Ellen's posts.

*It is well worth noting that the link for "part of" is to the Illinois 10th Democratic Organization. When I was a child I did a lot of work for Democrats in that area for the New Trier Democratic Organization (NTDO),some of it for the Mikva campaigns mentioned on the 10th site and that my late father was once a force in the NTDO; along with the late yachtsman Lynn Williams. I cannot speak for Mr. Williams but my father recognized the problems that his party has been having with the far left long ago and would have appalled that the 10th District Organization has become so closely aligned with the Daily Kos types and their yearly convention. The Yealrly Kos will be the same weekend as Lollapalooza, go figure.

Big Hat Tip to Publia of the Wilmette blog who noted the ridiculous post in the comments section of my original post on Ellen's Tenth.

Last night I incorrectly wrote that I had worked for the IL 10th Democratic Organization and have since corrected the post.

Many thanks to the wonderful Dr. Sanity and her Carnival of Insanities for inclusion again this week. Go read her blog!

Update: Thank you Team America! You are right that link was incorrect, I thought that I doulble checked it after posting; I blame Dick Cheney! The correct link is now posted, thanks again.

Time Magazine Gets "News" From La Rouche

c Flying Debris
La Rouche people in Chicago

Last week I ran across some folks involved with the despicable Lyndon La Rouche passing out their propaganda at the Fullerton El stop (Red, Brown & Purple Lines) in Chicago. As always I had to get their pamphlet to see what nonsense that group is peddling this year. Well Mr. La Rouche has become a big fan of Vlad Putin, the tyrannical former chief of the Soviet secret police (KGB) and Mr. La Rouche believes that the US must align itself with the dictator in order to salvage anything for our nation.

Just one week later the Gateway Pundit has the story of how Time Magazine, once a decent publication, has now done La Rouche one better. In this article they use an image of a Russian helicopter that "saves" the US from Iraq. Thank you Time Magazine for reminding why I stopped reading your publication decades ago.

The La Rouche fool pictured above claimed that Mr. La Rouche's conviction for selling unregistered securities was the fault of, are you ready - Bush. The old man of course. Apparently those geniuses believe that the former President Bush forced the La Rouche group to market securities that were not registered. I had a good laugh at their expense and belittled the guy some more before he stated that I must support "the evil Dick!" After a few more guffaws and figuring that the guy was not talking about Dick Nixon I told him that not only do I not support "the evil Dick whatever that is, I'm not even gay." Liberal protestations aside they are seemingly very interested in the sex lives of others. Well Mr. Pythagoras told me that the "evil Dick' is none other than Vice President Richard Cheney.

So Time Magazine has now sunk so low that it's bs political rhetoric matches that of the looniest of the loons; my question is, why didn't the Daily Kos beat them to the punch?

Note, the photo above was taken on my IPhone.

The Blogger Returns!

Well after a few days away from the blog-mine I'm ready to get back at it. I was the entertainment director for some friends this past weekend (and during the end of the week) and that kept me from my trusted computer.

Bridge to Nowhere Finds a Supporter

Yep that's right, while reading some of the the worst of the blogosphere yesterday I found what could be the only supporter of Republican Senator Ted Stevens' infamous "Bridge to Nowhere". The pork-barrel project that became a cause celebre to both fiscal conservatives and power hungry Democrats has had little to no open support from anybody in the lower 48 states and the earmarked spending has become shorthand for all that is wrong with congressional finances.

Strangely this single supporter is a Democrat. Maybe not all that surprising after reading her blog, Ellen's Illinois Tenth Congressional District Blog (succinctness is not a strong point over there) has been maintained by attorney Ellen Beth Gill who was a representative to the 2004 Democratic Convention from the IL 10th. Ms. Gill (if I may call her that) is currently blaming her, um, nemesis Congressman Mark Kirk, the Republican who currently represents the IL. 10th. Ms Gill has something to blame on Mr. Kirk nearly every day (sort of pathetic but hey it's her life) and last weekend she has resurrected a post from June '06 in order to blame the Republicans in general and Mark Kirk specifically for the, ahem, infrastructure problems of South East Alaska. Ms. Gill was helpful in pointing out the post from last year as it is hysterical; the post is titled "Imagine, no way to get to O'Hare".

Comparing the air field in Ketchikan, Alaska to one of the world's busiest airports is utterly inane but a few peeks at her comment sections show that she knows her readership, very well. On Sunday Ms. Gill blamed Mr. Kirk for helping to defund a bridge for 20 people a day but is now very happy that our nation may, in the end, spend millions of dollars to save time for a few Alaskans and a few wealthy tourists.

As a friendly note to Ms. Gill; O'Hare is a serious piece of infrastructure that affects millions of people in the tri-state area and around the nation; and I'm not even talking about the air travelers. To see an example of O'Hare's importance to the non-traveller Ms. Gill and her cohorts may want to take a drive along the southern boundary of O'Hare Airport. Drive down Irving Park Road west of Narraganset and take a look (to the north) at the traffic coming out of the O'Hare shipping terminal. For some further education they should trail those trucks that leave O'Hare and follow them down to the Joliet area, a booming trans-shipment are for the entire Midwest. It could be an educational field trip of sorts. Then they could try the same excercise in Ketchikan, the amount of industry that is reliant on airtransport is underwhelming and it is hard to imagine the industry that would rush to take advantage of easier access to the Ketchikam airport other than tourism. I guess that somebody has to stick up for the wealthy fishermen of the 10th district and their desire to catch (non Lake Michigan) salmon and Ms. Gill fits the bill.

If it matters I attended Joseph Sears School and New Trier East High School with Mark Kirk.

The Whole World is Watching!*

The Democratic Party and their core base of Surrender Monkeys are at it again!
The Gateway Pundit has the story with maps! After decades of telling the world how they are for human rights and women's rights, they have been given an opportunity to put those hollow words into action and once again they side with the world's fascists by insisting that the brave men and women of the US armed forces surrender. The Whole World Is Watching and all they can do is abandon those who desire to throw off the yokes of oppression. Pathetic!
*The chant "the whole world is watching" was used to dramatic effect by the protesters at the Democratic National Convention of 1968 which was held right here in Chicago. While young people were protesting the convention and the Democratic Party's involvememt in the Vietnam War (actually they were more against the draft) the Chicago Police were sent in against the crowds of protesters because the city deemed that the protesters were illegally camped out in Grant Park. As the Chicago Police waded into the crowd the crowd chanted "the whole world is watching", and indeed they were, the protest was televised. Over the years I have talked to people on both sides of that clash (I was much too young for such activities) and people on the police side would often tell stories that have never make it into press accounts. Those stories could change the story line about those evenings that has been promulgated for almost 40 years. For instance a retired FBI agent and some of his then co-workers (at his son's wedding) told me how they arrested a guy coming in from Northern Illinois University with bombs containing nails, that is more al qaeda-like than "peaceful" and the abuse that many Chicago Police say that they faced before the fateful clashes certainly was not "peaceful".

Nobel Bimbo Williams - "Whoops I Did It Again!"

In the previous post I wrote about a fascistic Nobel Peace Prize winner from Ireland who told a goofy "peace" conference of hateful women that she wants to kill President Bush because he is standing up against the sadists and fascists of our world. Well the fantastic Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs fame has linked to one of his posts from last year that relates how the Nobel winner Betty Williams told a group of school children that she wanted to murder President Bush while speaking at something called Earth Dialogues in Brisbane. See here for the Flying Debris take on Ms. Williams and her fellow travelers.

Irish Nobel Peace Prize Winner Supports Fascists

Irish Nobel Peace Prize winner Betty Williams has declared her desire to kill President Bush "nonviolently". Ms. Williams wants to murder President Bush because he has had the audacity to support the freedoms and liberty of others who are less fortunate than Ms. Williams and her fellow Irishmen. If this despicable woman actually supported peace she would be lined up behind George Bush supporting the American efforts to rid parts of the world of people who systematically abuse others. Ms. Williams and the other ahem, "peaceful" women at the bizarrely named International Women's Peace Conference in Dallas who applauded the homicidal rantings of this woman are not "peacemakers", in fact they clearly are not even peaceful women.

If you cannot even rhetorically stand up for the freedom and liberties of others, you are in fact supporting the fascists of the world and should reasonably be considered a fascist yourself. If you are supporting the fascists of the world in order to regain power in the United States, you are a fascist. If you state your desire to murder the man standing up for the oppressed of this world, even if you desire to murder in a "nonviolent" manner, you are a fascist. If you cheer for a woman who would murder the man standing against fascists, you are a fascist. The only reasonable defense that those Dallas socialites have is that they were intoxicated on hairspray.

Hat Tip: Drudge

Update: It appears that she has previously vocalized her fascistic, murderous fantasies.

If the Jews Can Get Along With the muslims...

They indeed are the chosen people. Islam has both theological and structural problems. Last week I wrote about the despicable washed up former pop star Cat Stevens and his bizarre take on, ahem, religion. That post also touched on one of the structural problems of islam. Well Scott Johnson of Powerline fame has reprinted some of the disgusting Catster's comments; these must've gotten the catster invited to the Gore-nonsense last weekend. Here is one bit of, ahem, "wisdom" from that backwards loser:

"The Jews seem neither to respect God nor his creation. Their own holy books contain the curse of God brought upon them by their prophets on account of their disobedience to Him and mischief in the earth. We have seen the disrespect for religion displayed by those who consider themselves to be 'God's chosen people.'"

As Johnson points out in this column all that the midievil muslim has done was to take crap straight out of their, ahem, "good" or, ahem "holy" book, the koran, "may god flush it."

I Left My Heart in San Fascistco

Zombie has the story of Independence Day in San Francisco and as usual he has the photos. This is hysterical, the "hipsters" of San Francisco held an uncurated (that is just asking for trouble even outside of San Fran) exhibit of propaganda art that even had actual Iranian propaganda. The photos are of the ignorant who populate a growing part of America's left and the Democratic Party and their, ahem, art. They actually do hate America, those poor delusional fools should move to Cuba or Iran.

I have some friends (usually only acquaintances) who are communists of vying degrees and one of my favorite ways to needle (belittle?) them is to inform those seemingly poorly educated (having often attended very good schools) folks that if the commies ever take over and people like me don't get to them first that they will welcome their heroes with a hearty "comrades, I've been waiting for you" in some language other than English and that their heroes will promptly shoot their asses dead.

This Should Piss the Democrats Off

The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has rejected a lawsuit that challenged the US surveillance program that was run by the NSA. This should drive the liberal nutcases crazy; as a group they believe that Bush is evil for listening in on overseas calls from known al qaeda operatives. This case is very interesting beyond the obvious legal issues, in fact members of the Democratic Party may very well be complaining about the "human rights" of machines.

Democratic whiners like Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wi) failed to understand the technology that allows anybody to forward calls from a telephone in the US to any telephone in the world; in that situation the "human rights" being defended are those of a telephone that just happens to be in the US. On the subject of Al Gore and the NSA I wrote in Some Casino is Missing Its Greeter that: "just a few weeks ago Al claimed to have found some sort of controlling legal authority (Finally!) involving the NSA tapping situation. As far as I could figure, Al found the same “controlling legal authority” that he found ten tears ago; Al Gore."

Gore Enlists Fascist for Live Earth Concert!

Al Gore, the silly former US Vice President who is currently making a living as a rather large Chicken Little has enlisted Yusef Islam for his pathetic "rock concert to save the world" idea. Islam will play in Hamburg where they have not had decent ticket sales, in fact cover bands playing Chicago can get the gate that Gore's Hamburg concert currently has. Yusef Islam is the former British pop star Cat Stevens. The Catster is the man who once wrote and sang the song Peace Train and he has spent the past several decades calling for the death of Salmon Rushdie due to the fact that Mr. Rushdie once wrote a book that the Cat's handlers don't like.

I once saw Mr. Islam when he was Cat and he was alright I guess; I went with a date who loved his music but I have never had the urge to see him again. I did however notice Mr. Islam during the summer of 2001 when the Financial Times had a short piece on the Catster's demand that Rushdie be killed for insulting islam in one of the many books that Mr. Rushdie has written. The FT piece cracked me up; let me put it this way, if you are a member of a religion that allows washed up pop stars to issue religious death edicts then you may want to rethink the whole religion thing. Hello Al? Islam is calling.

So Al Gore has now enlisted the help of a washed up former top-40 pop star who has turned to threatening other artists, all in order for Al to make more money. Al, how much is enough? Mr. Gore is now so hard up for cash and attention that he is outwardly tied to hateful islamic jihad. Nice going Al. Mr. Gore's wife Tipper is a noted rock fan who once played drums in a band and has long been friendly with Mickey Hart, the drummer for the former Grateful Dead. Before a show at RFK ('94?) the Gores hosted the members of the Grateful Dead at the Vice-President's residence and Tipper took a wild, secret service free motorcycle ride to the concert on the back of Mickey's bike.

I had to add that antidote to point out that the Gore family is not a geek-fest when it comes to rock and roll. Al must know that the Catster is a scumbag jihadist; what the hell does Tipper think of this? Is the entire Gore family in on this anti-western jihad nonsense? Does Al Gore III even know what's going on? On the subject of Al III I will leave the drug bust to others but I must say that anybody who drives a Prius at 100 mph on public roads should be in prison.

Padilla Jury Goes Red, White & Blue For the 4th

David Oscar Marcus of the Southern District of Florida blog has reported that the Jose Padilla jury down in Miami dressed up for court yesterday. Mr. Marcus reported that in the jury box the first row of jurors wore red, the second row wore white and the third row wore blue. Apparently this is not the first time that the jury has coordinated their clothing, last week all of the jurors but one wore black and recently all the women wore pink while the men wore blue. Coincidence or mere wackiness? Only the jury knows.

Hat Tip: Orin Kerr at the Volokh Conspiracy and of course, the Instapundit.
